KYÔ SUKASHII TSUBA 京透鐔
9.27.17 admin@nihonto

This is an iron tsuba from the Kyô-Sukashi school.  It dates to the Edo period (18th century).  It has a somewhat unusual shape that is square with a lattice design.  It measures 7.4 cm or 2.90 inches square.  The design is enhanced by a partial cherry blossom being carved in negative sukashi where the kogai-ana would be.  There is a slight bit of metal loss to the delicate kozuka-ana.  This tsuba comes with NBTHK Hozon papers attributing it to the Kyo-sukashi school and certifying the time period.

PRICE: $950.00
